Maybe it was hanging out with the wrong crowd... just kidding.. The only way to find out is to open up the tv. Unless the smoke was coming from near the power cord. When you open up the tv, there will probably be some sort of burn mark on the circuit board where a capacitor may have blown. If this is the case (and provided that the circuit board wasn't damaged too badly, you can get a sodering gun, remove the blown capacitor(s) and see if you can find replacements at your local electronics store and then soder it back in. If not, you might need a whole new circuit board.

The TV started smoking. Thought it might be dust. doesn't appear to be.

Your tv is burning part of it's electronics. Turn it off and unplug it. Either take it to a repair ship or replace it.

There is no bulb in any plasma TVs. The fault should be with any circuit boards inside it.

Need to find out a part # for my philips 52PFL7403/f7 for the ir sensor

Join Date: Nov 2011 I have a Philips 47PFL3603D/F7 with the same problem. It was the IR sensor board causing the problem. You can search online to find the board, which almost everyone will most likely not have in stock, and cant be ordered. The part you need is this: 313926859181 IR Remote Sensor.

Models it will fit are as follows: Substitute Parts 313926859182
Known Models

If you can find the board, great! A replacement board costs about $12.00. If you can't... we'll there is something you can try ; )

Either way, if you know it's the board, what's the harm in trying?

Remove the back from the TV. You can actually leave it on your stand to do this if you can spin it around to gain access to the back of it. Be sure to unplug everything first!!!

Looking at the back of the tv, the board will be located in the lower left side by the speaker. It will have 2 cables attached to it. Remove them, and take out the screw or two that holds it in place. There will be a plastic tab that keeps it in place also.

Take your fingernail and bend the tab back, and the board should come free. After that you should be holding the board in your hands. The side of the board with the connectors on it is the side you want to manipulate. There will be a tiny surface mounted capacitor beside one of the wire connection sockets. Take a utility knife and scrape it off/ you could use a soldering iron but it should come off very easy with a knife.

Plug it back in, and give it a try! If it works... great! If not, find a replacement board, and try that.

Hope it helps someone!!!! quote.gif

My 47PFl3603d\27 47 in. LCD TV is smoking from the right top side of the tv vent i need to know whats wrong with it

If you don't know about electronics you should probably take this to a repair shop. If you do and you plan on fixing this yourself then [unplug] take the back off the unit and have a look. It should be rather obvious what was smoking. The board may look burned in the area. You already know which side it was from. If it was a cap it will look puffed. The solder on the bottom may have cracks from the heat. Maybe a resistor burned up. If you find out which component burned up, I might suggest buying two replacement parts because, odds are, there's a reason that one fried. That part will be up to you to figure out. Maybe a transistor or a diode shorted out somewhere. You'll have to trace the circuit back through and test out other components. Good luck.
